Any woman desires a nha|»oly form, hut let her attain It In a natural way—eat ing properly, living rightly und hy sys tematlc exorcise. How few women have proper diges tion? One great cauae of alugglNh di gest lon la the Imperfect removal, both of waato und of realdunl. Since motion of the organa in u nee essary part of their function, no res toratlon of digestive power !h |Mtsslhle Chut does not ulao Include the restorn tlon of thla niechanlcul or muaculnr property. Many motlona may In* given to one's digestive organa united to different constitutions, condltlona of dlaeaae. development of the region, alrcngth of the Individual, etc. The following ex ercises have been carefully selected, which. If not entirely applicable for a glv en case, limy prove auggeatlve of some other that may act more to the purpose. The first exercise la given In n standing position. the body slightly bent forward, with coraeta and all tight fitting clothes removed. The ac tion Ih, the extended hands are made to strike the frontal regions of tho body, striking alternately with each band with such force und speed ns to produce no unpleasant sensations. If there be a point where pain Is felt, the action, at each successive ex ercise. should for a period be given to surrounding parts, approaching the tender part gradually until the pain disappears. The above may bo continued until the entlro frontal region has been traversed, and repeated as often us one deems practical. A more vigorous treatment may l»e given by using tho doubled list lnstcnd of the flat hand In striking. However. It la better to begin by using the open band. This treatment Is an unusually good one to assist In promoting absorption, or removing congestion. PARISIAN MODEL.

Much as It rains in England, there still prevails an Indisposition on the part of both men and women to wear rubber overshoes, i Another good action to Indulge It. while occupying thla position Is. with your two hands strongly clenched press uiM»n the abdomen firmly.causing the subjacent parts to yield to the pressure. This action may be contln ued for several minutes over thr whole region of the übdomen. This action excites the muscular coot me tinty of the tube. Another action having the same ef fect ns the above Is: With the pres sure of the hands, follow the course ol the colon, beginning low upon the right side of tho abdomen, fussing mound beneath the stomach, and ter minuting on the side opposite. This circular stroking may be continued for several minutes. Follow tills move ment with the pressure oxorrlso under the short ribs. The ends of tnc fingers are applied from below, and strong pressure mnde with a tremulous mo tion. This exercise excites muscular and nervous action In tho organs reached. the second exorcise Is one taken while occupying a kneeling |>osltlon. The arms are In an angle iiositlon— el Ini w bent, whllo the up|*?r arm Is near the sldo parallel with the body. The knees are wide apart, and tho trunk leaning back from tho perpen dicular. Tho arms aro slowly stretched up wards until they become parallel with each other, and In n lino with tho body. Retain this position for a short time —then allow them to slowly re turn to tho commencing |tosltion. Repeat this action ten or twelve times, using care that tho arms aro stretched so that they are exactly in u lino with tho reclining trunk. This exercise may bo varied, when the arms are stretched, by permitting the trunk to lean as far bark as possi ble. then sway from side to side— bending only at tho wulst Hue. Tho effect of this action Is fat reaching, noticeably In the arms, the top of tho shoulders, the region be neath tho shoulder bludes, tho sides of tho chest, the diaphragm, tho nbdo mlnal muscles, ns well as tho visceral organs, which are raised by It and moderately compressed.

Cretonne Parasols. Cretonne Is very popular HiIh season for evening contB and vesta, ns an ap pllque, and now cretonne parasols are prescribed for morning wear. The de sign must, of course, bo reasonably small, and the only deeorntlon Is the heavy cotton fringe n round the border.

This queer dwelling Is tho -egulation upright piano box laid flat m the side which corresponds to tho >ack of the piano and supported on argo stones which raise It about teu nches from the ground. The entire Milsluo of the “house" la covered with iheets of asbestos paper, and the top ir "roof" has an additional covoriug >f tar paiier. The slanting portion of Jio box Is hinged to the straight sec- Jon. forming u sort of horizontal door, ind the joint thus made Is covered The Plano Box Homo. with a double thickness of asbestos | tad tar paper to prevent any rain , >r snow from entering the box. The Interior walls aro covered with itout wrapping paper, and the whole tiructure Is absolutely Impervious to lampness. A shelf runs across tho ilde which would be the bottom of the I tlano and this shelf Is well paddud vlth quilts and blankets and forms a »ery comfortable lied for the occupant \aotber and smaller shelf near the 'ront serves as a cupboard for a stock if provisions. The stovo. cooking tu-n-lls and water barrel aro outside, ind the place has the appearance of : i temporary camp of some “knight of he road." Mendel owp* tho land upon which he piano box stands and thla tiny louse la all the heme he has. A our-room cottago formerly stood on his land and tho old man lived very -onifortably before the accident which lestroyed It. Tramps broke Into his cottage one tight whllo Mendel was In Bt. Louis m a visit to his daughter, and acd lentnlly sot lire to the plaA>. When .ho owner returned the next morning le found his home In ashes. Itelng too toor to build another house and an vllllng to live anywhere else, he siught tin* piano box and set It up on he site of his former home, and has ilnco lived In It as snug as a hug In a I’ug. Ills neighbors feared that lie vould suffer during the winter, but le declares that he was ns coniform- j lie till tho time as he ever was In the , >ld cottage, and the only thing he ucks Is room to wnlk about under ihelter when It rains.

He chops his own fire »oo(l. carries water every day from he brook about 200 yards away, and locs all the work around his "place" is well as a much younger man could In it. Ills daughter has repeatedly tried !o Induce him to nbnndun Ills unrotn- I 'ortnhlo quarters and live with her. J but he prefers the country and Its Illscomfort* to anything the city could | iffer hhn. he declares. • Ills unique house Is one of the sights •if tho north and south road, and mo ' lorlst* and other travelers along that ; rond often stop and call upon him and learn all nbout his remarkable way of living. He Is always very courteous In visitors, but will accept nothing In the way of n present from them ex cept an occasional cigar or pouch of robacco. Opera Epitomized. Mary Garden, tho famous prlma | donna. compared, during tho recent | Richard Mansfield sale, tho old-fash honed operas with such new works rs Thais." "Louise” and "Pollens et Me j Jsnndo." With a laugh she concluded: i "An operatic role now menns the ! .ivld portrayal of a chnrncter. It ; meant In the past simply an advance jto the footlights and an exhibition of trills, roulades and all the other vocal fireworks. The servant ninid went ! home from the old-fashioned opera, and when her mistress asked her how she liked It she replied: " ‘Gee, she sung lovely—Just as If she wttz garglin'.' " Royalties Use Typewriters. It Is reported that Queen Alexandra .if England. Queen Maude of Norway, the czarina and the queen of Portugal Rro nil fond of using the typewriter lln corresponding with their Intimates. It Is probable that all of them put together do not use the mnchlne ns much as Carmen Sylvia, the queen of Roumanla, who rattleH off her pnemß and stories on a typewriter.

Don’t Poison Baby. ITORTY YEARB AGO almost every mother thought her child mast have 1 PAREGORIC) or laudanum to make it sleep. These drugs will produce sleep, and A FEW DROPS TOO MANY will produce the SLEEP PROM WHICH THERE IS NO' WAKING. Many are the children who have been killed or whose health has been ruined for life by paregoric, laudanum and morphine, each of which is a narootio product of opium. Druggists are prohibited from selling either of the narcotics named to children at all, or to anybody without labelling them “poison.’’ The definition of “narcotio" 1b: “A medicine which relieves pain and produces sleep, but which in poisonous doses produces stupor, coma, convul sions and death.” The taste and smell of medicines containing opium are disguised, and sold under the names of “Drops,” “Cordials,” “Soothing Syrups,” etc. Yon should not permit any medicine to be given to your children without you or I your physloian know of what it is composed.
